Default Your favorite boxing memory

Mine is watching George Foreman ko Michael moorer to regain the heavyweight championship.
I don't think there is a greater feat in sports than what Foreman did that night, winning back the heavyweight title 20 yaers after losing it to Ali, and being 45 years old defeating a fighter who was almost 20 years younger.
I've had some great memories in my life particularly watching the redskins win 3 Superbowls, a lot of other great fights like Douglas -Tyson, Holyfield - tyson, etc, but Foreman's win over Moorer was something i'll never forget, I still watch that fight today, andI still get inspired by Foreman saying a prayer of thanks on his knees in the corner after Moorer was counted out.
What are your favorite boxing memories?

Probably the first Ali fight I ever saw. It was the Bonavena (I know I spelled it wrong give me break) It was on wide World of Sports.
I also really enjoyed the first Tyson/Holyfield fight.
